Vietnam shines in maintaining economic growth amid COVID, said international seminar

An online international scientific conference with the theme "The changing role of Vietnam in the contemporary world: Towards the XIII National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam" was held by St. Petersburg University, Russia.

Russian Ambassador to Vietnam Konstantin Vnukov highlighted the important role of the Communist Party of Vietnam in leading the nation's construction and development, with remarkable achievements such as high economic growth over years. Vietnam has gained its position and been trusted by the international community. Notably, the country has become one of the few to maintain economic growth despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Experts from different countries agreed that amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam received an increasing role in the international arena. The experts highlighted Vietnam’s foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, peace, cooperation and development, diversification and multilateralisation, proactive and active international integration. Vietnam's success over COVID-19 lied in the fact that the Party and Government had closely directed, mobilized the entire political system to participate in the prevention, and the citizens had strongly supported and complied with that policy, thereby enhancing the credibility of the Communist Party, said experts.

WHO and EU pledged to support 8 ASEAN countries, including Vietnam, in the fight against COVID

The European Union (EU) pledges to provide 20 million euros for the COVID-19 pandemic response program and is ready to respond to the next pandemic break in Southeast Asia, while The World Health Organization (WHO) will use its grant to continue supporting the governments of Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam in the fight against pandemic, said Suc khoe & Doi song.

"These countries have spent more than a decade preparing for pandemic situations, by designing medical systems strong enough to face situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic. The EU grant will contribute to this process and help countries across Southeast Asia prepare for the next medical emergency or pandemic” said Dr. Takeshi Kasai, WHO Regional Director for the Western Pacific.

The fund will be used to mobilize all regions and communities to join hands in prevention, preparedness, and response activities to control pandemic spread in the community and reduce mortality caused by COVID-19.
